How Long Does Facial Feminization Surgery Take To Heal is a comprehensive process aimed at achieving a more feminine facial appearance. Dr. Schoemann, a cosmetic surgeon in Encinitas, CA, works closely with each patient to tailor the FFS procedures to their specific goals, considering their facial features and bone structure. But how long does it take to recover from FFS? Let’s explore the recovery timeline.
Comprehensive Procedures in FFS:
FFS typically involves multiple procedures, which may include:
- Adam’s Apple Reduction (Tracheal Shave): This procedure reduces or eliminates the prominence of the Adam’s apple by carefully removing thyroid cartilage from the neck.
- Brow Lift (Browplasty): A browplasty raises and reshapes the eyebrows, achieving a higher and arched appearance.
- Cheek Augmentation/Reduction: Cheeks can be augmented using implants or fat transfer, or reduced to achieve the desired mid-face appearance.
- Chin Recontouring: A genioplasty or mentoplasty reduces chin width and height while creating a softer, rounder shape.
- Forehead Recontouring/Reduction: A lower, more feminine hairline is created by reducing forehead height and advancing the hairline.
- Jaw Contouring: The jawbone is shaved to achieve a narrower, shorter, and rounder jawline, contributing to a more feminine appearance.
- Lip Lift and Reshaping: Adjustments to upper and lower lip size and proportion enhance facial femininity, often involving upper lip reduction and increased lower lip fullness with implants or fat transfer.
- Rhinoplasty: Nose dimensions are adjusted to appear more feminine by reducing length, width, and projection to harmonize with facial proportions.

Most FFS patients can have these procedures performed during a single surgery session at our Encinitas surgical facility. While some patients may require an overnight stay for 1-2 days for monitoring, most can return home after surgery.
Recovery times may vary depending on the number and complexity of procedures performed, but typically range from 2 to 6 weeks. Dr. Schoemann and his team provide each patient with a personalized recovery plan, including guidance on incision care, returning to work or exercise, and other specific post-operative instructions tailored to their individual recovery process.
At Schoemann Plastic Surgery in Encinitas, our goal is to provide a safe, supportive, and compassionate environment for patients undergoing FFS. We are dedicated to helping you achieve beautiful, natural results during your transition journey.
